Collecting, preserving and promoting cultural goods, whether fine art, archaeological objects or decorative arts, is now a global practice.

The Art Collecting Legal Handbook is a cross-border guide designed to help collectors and institutions navigate the rules and regulations when acquiring, moving, enjoying and sharing works of art and antiquities. It opens with forewords by Julien Anfruns, General Director of ICOM, and Sam Keller, former Director of ArtBasel and Director of Fondation Beyeler.

This handbook contains chapters from multiple countries and jurisdictions all over the world, written to a template of 30 practical questions. The reader-friendly question and answer format enables readers to make quick and accurate comparisons across jurisdictions.

A collectable in itself, this title crosses the line between highly functional and aesthetically pleasing, the perfect addition for anyone who works in international art dealings.
